You know, what's really mind blowing is the thought that there are millions of people in this country who are willing to close thier eye and hold thier noses in order to vote for Mitt Romney. What does he have to do for you die-hards to wake up and realize the even though he is running on the Republican ticket, he really doesn't give a tinkers dam about the majority of the people in this country. The only reason that he associates with the common man is because he needs them to help him get elected. You can tell from his conversation that he doesn't hang out with the average guy. Not that it matters that he hangs out with the super rich and the mega rich, because that's who he really is. What he knows about how the rest of us live, you could stick in your eye and it would even bother you. He doesn't get the middle and lower classes, I mean who openly bets $10,000 as though it is for $10.00 or $100.00 and not give it a second thought. In these days and times with the economy struggling

I mean the birth of the OWS movement. Finally, the young people in this country are waking up. They realize that unless they do someting they will be doomed to pay for the many,many sins of our generation. They know that the older generation,republicans in particular are trying to sell our demacrocy to the highest bidder.They, OWS, have forced America to take a closer look at itself. What we have seen ain't pretty. Since the legal election of President Obama this country has started to turn itself inside out. America is and always has been one of the most racist countries in this hemisphere. We pretend to be such a democratic and caring country. but in reality, it's all a front, at least that use to be the case. Now though, since Obama took office, the gloves have come off. No more mister nice guy. Back when the teaparty stepped into the fray, that's when we really started to
I know that everyone, and I mean everyone is affraid of someone or something and that of course includes me. I said that to say this, the people who are going out of thier way to disrupt the town hall meetings are without a doubt scared out of thier wits. I mean those people other than the ones being instructed and paid by the wizards behind the curtains ( the insurance and drug companies). I'm talking about all those regular and unpaid citizens who truely live in the area of the town hall meeting have been listening and actually believing all the propaganda and hate speech. The really sad part about this is that they really think that they know what they are talking about. These are the same people who never try on thier own to find out if what is scaring them. Things like " death panels and putting grandma to sleep or forced abortions or concentration camps" and one of the most puzzling bits of ridiculous misinformation, comparing Obama to Hitler. HUH!? The reason that it is so easyRead More »from Fear Does the Trick
Speaking to the people who are doing all they can to destroy the democratic process by not allowing information to be deciminated by the people who really know the unadulterated truth at the town hall meetings. You are as much a victim as the people that you are denying thier civil rights. If you succede in killing this bill that would force the insurance companies to play fair, you are just putting more money in the pockets of the people who helped get us to the place that this country is in today. Don't you realize that you are doing thier work for them( The insurance companies and the drug companies). If you continue to listen to and believe all the hate-speak and made up stories about the Obama admistration wanting to euthinize our old people and FEMA concentration camps and Obama is not a real american and so on, and so on you have allowed yourself to become a victim and a tool. Are you really that easily misled. What are you affraid of? Hasn't eight years of the Bush (I'mRead More »from A Culture of Fear
What is wrong with our so-called leaders,both here in Cali and in D.C.. What is so hard to understand? The state, the whole country needs money. We all need for the banks to start acting like banks and let the money go. They've been given our money to stimulate the economy, that's right our money and yet they stand like deers caught in the headlights frozen along with the money and the credit. What was the point in giving them that first 350 billion dollars if they are afraid to move and now they are getting ready to give them even more, Lord I hope that this time there is at least one person watching the money.Read More »from Here we go again
The new economic stimulus package is finally squeezing through the senate with the republicans kicking and screaming all the way. "Too much wasteful spending,too much pork,needs more tax cuts, well, that idea with the tax cuts to stimulate the economy was one of"Li'l Bush's idea and guess what?, it didn't work then and it won't work now. As the old saying goes,"you have to
I know that the powers that be in Washintion,D.C. Repubs in particular are at thier wits end. They find themselves between a hardplace and a rock, so, they are doing what they have been doing for the past 8 years, obstruct and delay. They haven't come up with a viable economic plan for the whole time except"cut taxes". That seems to be thier answer to everything. Cut taxes and deregulate, that should fix it,...right? Well, as we have seen, it didn't work and it will never work, why? I'll tell you why, because without taxes how do we pay for the things that need so badly to be taken care of. I know that President Obama is asking us to take a big leap of faith but at least he has a plan and he is willing to stand behind his plan. The repubs keep saying that the plan will cost too much but, we already know what happened during this past 8 years has been anything but a solution to the situation that we are in now. They created it and now they have the unmitigated gall to try and stall whatRead More »from Now that he's in office, let him do his job
Today friends, was the beginning of a new era. The start of something that has been "a long time coming".Thank you George W. Bush for, without your bumbling and ineptitude this might not have happened so soon. When I say soon, I mean in my life time. I've been waiting all my life for this moment and thanks to the grace of God, my dream has come true. I always told my kids that, I believed that we would have a man of color as our Commander and Chief some day but...not in my lifetime. I thank God that I was wrong. I know that President Obama is not the Messiah but, for some of us he is the closest thing to it.You see, I know what racism really feels like. Growing up in the South during the past few decades I knew Jim Crow personally. I know what it was like to be forced to ride on the back of the bus, even though there were empty seats in the front. I know what it was like to drink from "colored" water fountains or to have to hold my urine because there were no restrooms for "colored"Read More »from Now we are truely part of the American Dream
Isn't it strange that the senate after approving a here-to-fore unheard of Gift of over 750billion dollar to the banks and stockmarkets without any requirements or restrictionts or oversight would have the unmitigated gall to put such strangling restrictions on people who actually work for a living,the auto industry. As a matter of fact, when Paulson(Treasury secretary) was asked what was being done with the 350 billion that the banks had actually taken.....he didn't have a clue. Well, it looks like they did it to us one more time, while we were looking right at them. The money that the banks got was suppose to be used to loosen up the credit market. Instead, the banks are sitting on it while they continue in thier same old ways. So what was acomplished?, we the people got screwed one more time. Here's another thought, what ever happened to the money that was suppose to be generated throught the California state lotto that was then suppose to be used to help with the cost of ourRead More »from WHAT HAPPENED TO THE MONEY
Well good people, it finally happened, for many millions of us it was a Godsend, on the other hand, for a lot of us it is the beginning of a nightmare. What I am talking about is the legal and convincing election of a true African-American man as President of the United States of America a truely historical moment in the history of the world, not just America but the entire world. Never in the history of the world has an election of a leader been so closely watched. The whole world has been waiting for someone to come onto the scene that represents something more than ,more of the same. Someone who cares about more than lining his and the pockets of his cronies(the upper 1%) with untold wealth, while the rest of the country and the world can go pound sand. For those of you who are sitting in your little room contemplating someting dire, stop!, stop and think for a second. I mean, I know that Obama isn't "Joe the plumber or Joe sixpack" but, he is one of the most intellegent men to beRead More »from NOW WHAT ?
What kind of game do the Republicans think they're playing? Do they really think that they can pass this unknown woman off as a viable candidate for the vice-presidency of the U.S. of A. Do they think that the American public is that gullible. On the other hand, somehow, Li'l Bush managed to get into the Whitehouse twice and as the headlines read during that time,"Can 57,000,000 americans be that stupid?" Wellllll...here's hoping that America, and that's women in particular, don't fall for the hype. Don't cut off your nose to spite your face. Sarah Palin is a woman true enough but that is where the similarity ends between her and Hillary. She is the "anti-Hillary". The Republicans are hoping that you will be so blinded by your anger at the fact that Hillary didn't win, in a hard fought but mostly fair election, that you will forget the larger and more important issue, changing the status quoe. Vote with your heads, not your hearts. You can put lipstick on a pig, but it's still aRead More »from What the Hell was he thinking about
